Wanted Pietersen to play for England despite disliking him: Graeme Swann
Former England spinner Graeme Swann described how he always wanted Kevin Pietersen to play for England despite their differences. According to Swann, both of them didn't like each other but cordoned off differences when playing for the national side. The duo was part of England's side, that reached the number one Test rankings and also clinched the Ashes. Pietersen lacked respect for the authority and rules, said Swann.
